Ensuring the health and safety of our network during coronavirus
Our network is vitally important in fulfilling our mission of fighting child hunger. As we continue supporting these children during the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, ensuring the health and safety of our network is equally important.
We are continuously monitoring the situation and in contact with the Minnesota Department of Health and school and district program partners.
We are taking these steps to reduce the risk in our network.
- Requiring employees to stay home.
- Asking employees who have to come in to:
- Wash hands when they arrive at the office each day and multiple times throughout the day.
- Wear face masks in the facility and while out on business, including deliveries to partners
Packing Event Volunteers
Since March, we have continued packing bags at our warehouse with a small group of return volunteers to reduce exposure to volunteers and staff. We are continuously evaluating our volunteer events based on the current situation and are starting to open some volunteer events to the public. We are taking several steps to maintain our volunteers’ health and safety. Learn about the steps we’re taking here.
Food distribution volunteers
With school closures, we have halted our distribution of food into children’s backpacks for our weekend food program through volunteers. Read more about how we are working with school district leadership to continue delivery of our food and ensure their student populations have access to it in our FAQs.
This is a dynamic situation and we will continue to revise plans as needed to ensure the health and safety of our network.
